Tokyo – May 15, 2023 –Toppan (TYO: 7911), a global leader in communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions, has been certified as a Shopify Plus Partner, the highest rank under the program operated by Shopify Inc. (Shopify) for sales and development partners.
Shopify Plus is the highest level plan of Shopify’s scalable and customizable commerce platform for a wide range of commerce businesses, from medium-sized to large corporations. As a Shopify Plus Partner, from mid-May this year Toppan is able to collaborate fully with Shopify to provide clients with an array of e-commerce solutions, including introduction of Shopify Plus, online store marketing, product development, system development, and design, management, execution, and optimization of business processes. Toppan will provide end-to-end support for comprehensive solutions to get the best possible results for clients’ e-commerce businesses.
Recent years have seen growth in the number of manufacturers and brands opening online stores to facilitate Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) business models. It is therefore important to select an e-commerce platform that enables rapid entry into the business.
In D2C marketing, businesses can sell products directly to consumers and enhance customer satisfaction by reflecting feedback in product improvements and development. This requires capabilities for constructing online stores, taking orders and shipping products, providing services by communicating directly with consumers, and analyzing customer data. Many companies, however, do not have sufficient know-how and human resources to do this by themselves.
Shopify Plus has an extensive track record with the top 20 American D2C brands by sales revenue (Charm.io research). As a partner, Toppan will provide Shopify Plus solutions with an even higher level of scalability and customization. Based on its wealth of experience in e-commerce and repeat mail order business, Toppan will provide end-to-end support for solutions ranging from introduction of Shopify Plus, to e-commerce marketing, platform development, and consumer-facing services.
